Beyonce Shops It Up With Jay-Z & Kanye, Gets Accused Of Stealing Dance Moves....AGAIN

Shopping gets everyone in the cuddly mood...right?  It does the trick for The Carters.  Beyonce & Jay-Z were spotted hitting up Intermix with Kanye West in NYC over the weekend.  And the little shopping trip took place amidst rumors that Mrs. Knowles Carter jacked her latest "Countdown" dance moves from a Belgian choreographer.

 

Deets and pics inside....

Bey & Jay decided to cop a few clothes (maternity wear maybe?) with fashion designer/rapper bestie Kanye over the weekend.  And Jay did the rare act of cuddling up to his wife with a big hug.  This pregnancy has made him oh-so-mushy these days.  Not mad at it.

But all isn't A-OK.  Beyonce is now being accused of ripping of Belgian choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker in her new "Countdown" video.  Apparently, the video's director Adria Petty recently said right before the Countdown vid premiered that she received inspiration from a certain German choreographer (and she very well could have been speaking of Anne), and brought the clips to Beyonce:

"I brought Beyonce a number of references and we picked some out together. Most were German modern-dance references, believe it or not. But it really evolved."

And Anne has spoken out to a Danish blog about the rumor saying:

"I didn't know anything about this. I'm not mad, but this is plagiarism.  This is stealing. They took pieces from Achterland and Rosas danst Rosas. ... It's a bit rude, I must say."

"What's rude about it is that they don't even bother about hiding it. They seem to think they could do it because it's a famous work. ... Am I honored? Look, I've seen local school kids doing this. That's a lot more beautiful."

Interesting.  Here's the video that does the obligatory clip-by-clip comparison of similar scenes and you be the judge:

 

More pics of the threesome's shopping trip:

 

Uncle 'Ye's looking pretty happy these days.

Cute pics.

yeah she a theif, when i was wearing braids i think she saw me and copied me. ??? We come from a world of sampling in music and clothing & fashion no one ever thought Hammer pants would come back but they did and they are called harem pants. everything has come back but with a twist . You people knw nothing about music videos. ideas and concepts of them are a spawn from a touch of this and midget of that. Ive done videos where inspiration has come from the pages of magazines. Picasso was inspired by Paul Gauguin who was inspiried by Camille Pissarro and on and so on .......the more you know the more you grow.

I LOVE you Bey. You are an artist...you are an artist's artist. Regardless of taste or preference, she is creative and inspiration comes from all things and places. I have seen her perform live, she is no Keri Hilson or Ciara. She's dope. If anyone here is a dancer, a black dancer especially, you know you have performed Alvin Ailey, you know you have performed pieces that are obviously inspired by Ailey, and you know that no one from Ailey have EVER contacted you or your company (or dance class) for credit. People stay trying to get famous off of this woman's fame and visibility and Bey has never denied that much of her dance and videos have been inspired by other dancers and performers.

Beyonce to me is a rare

Beyonce to me is a rare talent in this day and age. I respect her for having talent as a singer, dancer, putting out popular music and having the looks that it takes to make it in the music industry today. Most artist just need one of those qualities to be successful, mainly the look. There are very few artist who possess all of the qualities that she possess and her work ethic has enabled her to become hugely successful over the years. But, with all that being said, something is lacking in her camp when almost every music video she has done of late has no real originality. Not saying that this is uncommon, many artist have done this before. The problem to me is that she seems to be very messy with it. Artist's that have taken inspiration from some place else usually inform the party that they were inspired by. In this case the choreographer had no idea until the video came out and this seems to be happening with her a lot. I think part of it is that she's cast as someone who's known for taking credit for things that she doesn't deserve. So now whenever there's a hint of her doing this, people are ready to bounce on her. Even after she acknowledges the source of her inspiration, people just don't want to hear it. She's needs to do some revamping on this part of her image 'cause no other pop singer out right now has this issue and it seems to be getting worse and worse 'cause she can't explain this away like she did with her "writing" credits. It's going to get to the point where she's gonna have to pay royalties for her video inspiration the same way royalties are paid to artist's whose work has been sampled. I know some might say royalty should only be paid if she's profiting for using the other person's work, but in an indirect way she is. As big as an artist as she is everything she does has a profit margin.

Inspiration, copy, tomatoes,

Inspiration, copy, tomatoes, to-mah-toes. Instead of accusing her of copying, how about considering the fact that acknowledgment of her "inspirations" may help change people's lives. For instance, Tofo Tofo, the group that she flew in from Mozambique to teach her their dance steps for her "Run the World" video are now known in the United States. And apparently, another R&B artist is flying them over for dance lessons. How wonderful is that? I am an optimist so I am looking at the benefits. Maybe Beyonce is to unknow artists what Oprah was to authors.

Beyonce is a biter but she

Beyonce is a biter but she does it best and gives it national attention. It is only stealing when she does it because everyone pays attention to her every move. She acknowledge that she received inspiration. Does she have to have a press conference and mention "by the way I used choreography from so and so?" Who does that? No matter what we are talking about her. Love her or hate her but you don't ignore her. lol

Again I say, all you spent

Again I say, all you spent people who don't like Bey for whatever reason--- you thinks she's a lying, fake preg, talentless thief, or whatever your beef with her maybe, you sure do give her alot of your time, and keep her posts "on top"(pun intended). It only proves that she is all that if she can keep even her hater's time, energy, and attention on her. Meanwhile, she's out working, shopping, married, in love, doing the friends and family thing., etc,you know - the life that affords her all the opportunities to do things you'll be on your death bed regretting you didn't do. Meanwhile, she's not giving a second thought to you.......but she stay on your mind and in your mouth......and don't even know you! If that ain't winning.... Will one of you haters/truth speakers please answer me this......who do you worship, exactly? because whoever it is, they are jealous! Im'a tell you that right now. LOL. People who hate the devil no better than to give him the satisfaction.... The light can't be on and off at the same time. You can't have your mind on two things at the same time. Draw near to God and he will draw near to you. Flee from the devil and he will flee from you. So what exactly are you doing spending your energy, time, and attention on Bey? I'll wait (in Kat's voice).

i'm sorry this is

i'm sorry this is intellectual property theft. this is not "inspiration" it is a downright copy cat act. i'm not saying she has to tell us where she gets her 'inspiration" from. but you need to acknowledege the original choreographer. come on. if she and the german lady had come to an agreement none of this would be an issue and we will all prob have thought it was b's original work cuz the woman wdn't have felt the need to rant and make this into a big thing. she wld still have gotten the glory without any of the hoopla. her team needs to sort this out. i'm sure they would settle out of court as usual and make it dissapear. all the woman wants is probably to get paid and if that happened in the first place then none of this wld be an isue. as for the "fake baby bump" she probably is pregnant i don't think she wld lie about being pregnant she prob just wears a baby bump to "make an even bigger statemet". maybe? i don't know how her mind works.lol

Correct me if I'm wrong, but

Correct me if I'm wrong, but why do I have a feeling that the public is turning on Beyonce? Things haven't been going well for her ever since she's come back on the scene with this new CD. It's not called a "rise and fall" for nothing. People spent years putting this woman up on a pedestal and now it looks like she's falling. People are beginning to lose interest in her and it looks as if their trying to get rid of her. I can't say that all of this is the public's fault. Beyonce did bring some of this on herself by some of the choices she's made. It's like dirt is being dug up and she's being exposed. Just because she's in front of a camera and smiling doesn't mean that all is well. We don't know what she has to deal with on a daily basis behind the scenes. It's not just something that I notice from the public, but it also looks like the industry folks are ready to give her the boot too.

Everyone gets inspiration

Everyone gets inspiration from somewhere. No one is the first to come up with any idea. Honestly, no one would have ever heard of this choreographer if the moves hadn't been used in a beyonce video. What's the difference between beyonce getting inspired by the dance and using it and someone else doing the same for a YouTube video. When I was on the dance team in high school and college, all schools borrowed moves from each other and sometimes put our own spin on them. I don't recall anyone accusing anyone of "stealing" choreography. They even acknowledged they were inspired by a German choreographer, so what's the big deal?

If there was no Madonna, there probably wouldnt be a GAGA. And God knw if Micheal never performed, Usher, Chris Brown and the rest of these guys would probably be frying chicken in Virginia.

Beyonce is NOT pregnant. I know someone who works very closely with her & her team and they said that she definitely wears a PROSTHETIC BABY BUMP!!! they have even SEEN the bump & said it's a silicone bump, that has the texture of real skin and is hooked to a harnest that she secures on to her bra straps and pantyhose. I don't know WHY such a high profile couple would FAKE a pregnancy; do they not know the whole WORLD is watching???!!!! They ARE however adopting a baby from BARBADOS and Beyonce and Jay will travel there at the time the surrogate mother is due/goes into labor. Everybody knows that BEYONCE and KANYE are in LOVE with each other and JAY Z is in love with RIHANNA!! I know the stand are going to HATE me for this one! But I KNOW what I'm talking about!! And you all will see it in the coming months..BEYONCE isn't even growing like a pregnant woman does..no change in her face, arms, legs, NOTHING!! look up prosthetic baby bumps online and you WILL SEE what I am talking about!!! FAKE baby bump, FAKE pregnancy, FAKE marriage. BEYONCE goes for the WOW affect & she has truly OUTDONE herself this time.
